Unfortunately the only way to get a recovery for any preloaded system is to contact the manufactuer of the product. IE if the unit is a Compaq you can contact Hewlett-Packard, must be the current company that owns the model and build. Compaq is now part of HP is the only reason for the example.

They will ask your model and serial. new discs may cost you to obtain but serial will give them the preloaded software information.

Outside of recovery discs, secondary option. Purchase a new operating system. expensive but does work as well.
Hope this helps.

My hp laptop with windows vista home premium is not booting and showing to insert bootable disk, which I don't have.how i can get this


The installed Windows in your laptop has been corrupted beyond repair - you will have to reinstall it.
For that pres F11 during boot to launch the HP Recovery Manager from the recovery partition then follow the instruction. If even that fails it means that the hard disk itself has failed - the disk will have to be replaced and to reinstall Windows you will have to order a recovery cd for your exact model from HP.

Hi there,

We wish you a very Happy New Year.

Which is your operating system?
Below mentioned steps are for Vista,assuming your operating system is Vista.
Post back if it is not Vista.

Run it from the Command Prompt of Recovery Options if you have, or a Vista boot disk. You can
borrow a friends if needed as they are not copy protected or make a repair disk.

And/or Run the other diagnostic tools I listed.

You probably do have hard drive issues its only can they be repaired or not.

If you need to make repair disks - these help repair Windows not re-install.

Without a recovery disk, you have a big problem. The Vista Key is locked to Lenovo so you need a Lenovo Vista CD.

You could screw around and hope that you get something out of Lenovo to fix your problem but I would seriously look at installing Windows 7 Home Professional. It is much better than Vista. With 2GB you should be OK, but more memory wouldn't hurt.

I don't have the recovery disk. How can I recover the Vista on the Laptop? Is there any key combination rather than recovery disk?


you can use another vista disk (can you borrow someones?) and have it in when you turn it on. press 'any key' when asked to, load up windows setup and then when it has finished loading choose repair/diagnose and select your copy of windows. You get an option in here to detect and repair starup problems, you can also use this to install a fresh copy of windows if that doesnt fix your problem, be careful not to install over the top of what you have already if you dont want to loose things.

you need to bear in mind that you need to have a CD key for the version of windows that you are installing, the vista home premium key on the bottom of your laptop is no good if you have borrowed a home premium CD for example, you dont need a key to run the diag tools though

Gateway Laptod Model No M360


First you will need to register at gateway, I took the serial number you provided and gateway has no record of it, once you register it, you should be able to purchase the recovery disks. I'm including the link:
https://secure.tx.acer.com/RCDB/Main.aspx?brand=gateway&sn=0000000000 you need to register in order for this link to work, that serial number has to be in gateways system, once it is you can order recovery media. Hope this helps

I cannot create my recovery cd... in vista Hp laptop


This is a known issue. Remove the Vista Service Pack 1 and then try creating the Recovery Disc.

After creating the Recovery Disk, reinstall the Vista Service pack 1.

HOW TO FACTORY RESET TOSHIBA SATELLITE NOTEBOOK


That model Toshiba does not come with a recovery CD, does not have a restore partition, and does not allow you to creat a recovery disc when working normally, so unfortunatly you have 2 choices.

1. Call Toshiba and try to get them to mail you a recovery disk, if they have any they will likely charge you for the disk + shipping.

2. Reinstall windows manually using a clean install, you can use any OEM windows disk as long as it is the same version as your windows product key on the bottom of the laptop (i.e XP Home/XP PRO/ XP MCE/ or VISTA - all vista disks are basically the same and have all 3 versions on them)

Make sure you have backups of the drivers for your network adapter and other hardware before doing a clean install.

I formatted my laptop which is using windows vista,how will i bring back the vista again?


once you format your sytems means, you deleted whole OS so you need to reinstall fresh OS on it.
you supposed to have a recovery disk (it comes alongwith laptop while buying it)
but it depends on what basic OS was there when you bought your Laptop if there was XP then you got XP OS recovery disk if there was vista then you have Vista recovery disk.
if you don't have recovery disk then you need to get new Vista disk from market to install back vista in your laptop.

thank you,

I'm not completely sure on what you are exactly asking here, but I'll do the best I can. If you have the Recovery CD, you need to boot from the CD and run the Recovery. When you go to do the recovery you will have two options, the normal recovery or the destructive recovery. If there is nothing important and everything can be wiped, run a destructive, but if you need everything run the other one. If you do not have a Recovery CD but have a Windows Vista disk that matches the version on your computer (IE: Windows Vista Home 32 bit is on your computer and you have a Windows Vista Home 32 bit disk) and you DO NOT need anything saved, just reinstall Windows. There is a product key for Vista on the sticker attached to your case. If you have neither, then you can probably get a new recovery disk by contacting HP (since they bought out Compaq). If you can not get a new Recovery CD, you will need to go out and buy a new copy of Windows Vista.
